Kristen, Grade 8 – I learned that 100 years ago Winnipeg was the robust city in Canada. Manitoba has the best wheat! Very informative, interesting.
Kristin, Grade 4 - I liked the presenter. Was fun, clear, funny and expressive, fun and more.
Michelle, Grade 9 - Very interesting! Loved the pictures of their [the presenters'] trips and of the planes. Equipment was really neat.
Maverick, Grade 7 - It was really cool learning about the RCAF! I learned lots of things.
Julie, Grade 9 - The artifacts were very cool. :)
Sarah, Grade 4 - I liked learning about activities that they did in the ancient time.
Ariane, Grade 4 - C’était vraiment FUN! Merci pour cette aventure avec nous. Je ne voudrais pas être dans le vieux temps.
The payment form has been updated to reflect the new date. The error in fees has also been fixed. The form can be accessed directly at http://www.redriverheritage.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Fee-Schedule-2014-1.pdf
The Good News is that we’ve got the problem solved. It’s all going to work out.
The Bad News is that we have had to change the date of the 2014 Red River Heritage Fair. Due to complications at the U of Winnipeg, the Fair can’t be held on the original date of Tuesday, May 6, and so we’ve been forced to move it. The folks at the Duckworth Centre at the U of W have done a tremendous job in shifting things around and getting the Fair shifted to Thursday, May 1.
We’ll get forms on our website updated to reflect this in the next few days. In the meantime, remember that the registration deadline remains on April 11, but because of the shortened timeline, we really, really can’t have people registering late.
So the Fair is Thursday, May 1 with setup on April 30. We’re sorry for any inconvenience or trouble this might cause, but we really can’t avoid it. I hope it works out for everyone.
We’ve got a sparkling new Photo Consent Form posted at http://www.redriverheritage.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Photo-Consent-English-2014.pdf
This year we are asking you to mail the form to the Registrar at the address on the form. We’ve had a lot of trouble collecting the forms the past couple of years and this will help solve that problem. You can also e-mail a scanned version of the form to the e-mail address on the form.
Remember that the form MUST be signed by the parent or guardian if the child is going to participate. We simply cannot pick one or two kids out from among the 300 or so at the Fair and avoid having their pictures posted. It’s too difficult.
